Sydney's festival of light illuminates famous landmarks

Check out these colourful photos from Sydney, Australia, as buildings are lit up during the city's 18-day festival of light.
As first sight this might seem like a giant butterfly, but look closely and it's actually images of butterflies which have been projected onto the side of Sydney Opera House. It's part of a series of buildings in Sydney which are being lit up for the city's annual festival of light.

Who doesn't like bunny rabbits? These giant inflatables are lit up from the inside and are part of a display on Sydney's shore line.

The equipment used to light up the landmarks uses special software to project an image onto the building's side. There seems to be a common theme - lots of colour.
